Dissected a CQ Red Fram made RA closeout. It came off my Ram with 7500 miles. Oil used was QSUD



0w20. Excellent filter for $1.40

Frampion construction? Looks that way to me instead of Wix or Purolator.

Date code?

Aren't those Reds discontinued by CarQuest? Hasn't the filter supplier changed?
If so, those pics can't aid new purchasers.

Looks a lot more like Wix construction than Fram.

I have read that in here as well so I'd also like to know as that is the current filter I have on my Ram Hemi. (if it's the Premium?) I have used these since it's first oil change and although I have never tore one apart before they have served me well.
My bud, who works at CarQuest, told me back in 13 that these filters were made by Wix.

Back in 2013, they were indeed made by Wix. But in 2014, AAP bought CQ and switched the filter supplier to Fram. Then, in 2016, AAP/CQ switched suppliers again and now they are made by Purolator.

Base plate concavity, ADBV, & and center tube look Frammish to me, dome end bypass looks like a Champion Labs design.

Compare with Wix 57060

Compare with Napa 27060

It sure don't look like a Purolator either to me

If there's a date code on the can, it can determine who manufacured the filter based an the date code's format.

Fram date code, made the 19th day of 2015 (or 2005, but doubt it's that old).

Thanks - definitely Frampion, January 19, 2015 birthday, consistent with your first sentence in the thread and C&P showing a leaf retaining spring, dome end bypass, ADBV, & baseplate design. Nothing like the cutaway Napa 27060 cut open linked in my last post.

I think these and the Frampion CQ Blues are the best non-wire backed oil filters Fram has manufactured. The reds are basically Fram Extra Guard media with metal end caps and often Champ Labs style dome end button bypass, and blues are basically Tough Guard media with metal end caps and often Champ Labs style dome end button bypass.

I got a mix of Wix & Frampion CQ Blue oil filters for my truck from Rockauto earlier this year. I can still find NOS Frampion manufactured CQ oil filter for my truck at AAP stores, but no more than 1 in store inventory at a time at any one of the 3 AAP in the greater SA area that stocks them (84899 for CQ Blue for my Ram), requiring driving around town to fulfill an order with 3 of these and a jug of CQ brand Dexcool to make $20 order after discount code applied to use a $5 Speedperks rewards coupon. But this still nets me Frampion CQ Blue filters for around $4 each, about the same as RA after including shipping.

A shame these designs were discontinued, and will probably never be manufactured again.

I have 4 of these left and I am impressed with these filters.
